We got really confused with the indication of the size of a TRAVEL BAG (NOT, not, not the day bag) delivered with my board. And I'm not the only one, even the dealer made the mistake. Lucky I can use the one I ordered for my other 107.

Can anybody tell me exactly the TRAVEL bag to order?
If he's someone in starboard is better. I can print the answer and give it to my dealer. In this case if it's not the right size we both know with whom to complain to. So be able to change it or get refund.

Thanks

Is it so hard to Starboard to provide a simple information to buy your product?
Come on gays, little help for a TRAVEL bag. Need to order before next week.

Thanks

Thank you, first of all I don't need double or triple bag, but the one for one board only.
As you can easly see in your link there is NO indication about the TRAVEL bag for my isonic127. The only indication is for the DAY bag.
I've already bought, following starboard direction, the L size of a TRAVEL bag and I LOST my money because it is not fitting my isonic127. Lucky I can use for my other 107, even if now I have 2 board bags for this board.

The TRAVEL bag size L is 75cm, so clearly not fitting the 85cm of the isonic127. The XL size TRAVEL bag is 85cm, exactely the size of the board..
Is this bag good for my board?

Please don't let me waste other money and problem with the dealer.
I'm just try to buy a starboard product,guys, please help your customer.


Thanks

Hi Emil

Their is no iSonic simple board bag in the range, this Double & Triple Travle iSonic board bag have a lot for reinforcement to protect your boards during travel.

You can put in the Double your 127 & 107 or put One board With sails.

All the best

Really, I don't know what to say.
Maybe the single TRAVEL bag are not made specifically for the iSonic but Starboard produces 4 models of single TRAVEL bag size M, L, XL and Formula. The L size is already in my hand and even well paid. The problem is that this size is not fitting my 127 but is good for my 107.
My question is:
The XL size TRAVEL bag is 85cm, exactely the same size of the 127 iSonic (85cm). Is this bag working for my board?

Thanks

Quoted board bag sizes are for max width of board, not max width a bag, IE 85cm wide bag will take 85cm board. Thats what I got told by my dealer:)

Hi Emil,

Then you take the Size XL (260x85) but again the double iSonic board bag will protect your board or boards better.

All the best

Dear Emil,

Please, stay tuned, we will investigate and check the information about which bag suits which iSonic and come with a clear answer.

Sorry for the inconvenience created by a lack of clear and precise informations in my hands.

Cheers !

Thanks Jean-Marc, very helpful reply.
I decided to order the XL TRAVEL bag. I choosed for this option because I've already bought the L size by mistake and I still have one of my old board bag. Funny, I'm going to have more board bags than boards eeehhhh!!!!
I prefer the Travel bag for other 2 reasons:
It's 12mm thicker compare to the 8mm of the day bag and it has a better zipper (usually, the weakest part of the board bag).
It's a little help since I travel most by car.

Thanks again
Emil

Well now that it's previous post has disappeared, I'm back to my thoughts.
I even sent your info to my dealer but now.... what a mess for a simple bag!!!!

Emil,

The single Travel XL bag is not a good option for your iSonic 127 board, unfortunately. Main reason is that the Travel bag line has been designed solely for Futura and Carve boards, not for iSonic boards. Futura and Carve boards are much longer than iSonic boards and therefore will fit better and snugglier inside the single Travel bags than iSonic. An Isonic will move forward and backward in such a 260 cm long bag and this may not offer the best degree of protection during travel. That is the main reason why such Travel bags are not listed in the charts on our website for the large iSonic : http://www.star-board.com/2012/products/charts.php?id=board_bags

As Rémi pointed out above, he recommends you to order the Double isonic Travel bag. Main reason is that this bag is specifically cut much shorter (245 cm lenght) to better accomodate the shorter lenght of any iSonic boards. Moreover, there are compression belts around the bag which enable you to better custom-fit the width of the bag to any large iSonic boards up to the 137. As for the single Travel bag, the Double isonic bag is made of 8 mm thick foam on the top and bottom body panels. Extra 12 mm thick foam on the sidewalls confers to the bag a better padded protection.

Hope you've got a better picture now of which bag suits and offers the best protection to your large iSonic 127 board during travel.

Cheers !
